Cal Coast’s experience working with
Chris Edward Consulting
9 placements, 2 promoted into leadership
100% placement Success rate
ROI - 4x revenue growth of AV Division in 3 years
Worked with Cal Coast Telecom, a AV | UC | Structured Cabling | Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) | Physical Security systems provider. The company was experiencing growth and looking to add multiple hires: Programmer, Field Engineer, Project Manager, and Pre/Post Engineer.
Problem: Smaller organization that needed help telling their story to gainfully employed industry talent. There was no structured interviewing process, and being that the culture of the company, not to mention size was also something they were not considering when identifying the right match. Not having the talent was resulting in opportunity cost, as Cal Coast was not able take on new customers, or go after new business.
Solution: Teamed up with Cal Coast’s owners and advised them on how to tell their story to the type of hires they wanted to attract. This was not a company that had the fortune 50 company name and resources. They had to change their approach! So we structured their interviewing process that was a combination of phone, video and in person interviews. This allowed more team members to be a part of the process, giving candidates a good view of the fun/hard working team environment they potentially would be joining. It also gave Cal Coast different views of the candidates to expose the potential bad hires.
Result: Since partnering with Cal Coast 3 years ago, we have successfully hired 9 people at 100% successful placements, 2 promotions, and 100% retention rate. These placements resulted in 3 years of YoY growth quadrupling their AV Division from $2.5M to $10M in revenue.
About Cal Coast: Cal Coast Telecom is a premier provider of telecom, wireless, AV, security, and DAS infrastructure, and we have one of the best service fleets in the market.
